Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips are teaming to bring a new noir-ish superhero tale from Marvel called Incognito.

“Incognito is a project that I’ve been waiting to do for some time now,” said Brubaker. “Where Sean and I previously explored a good guy pretending to be bad and losing sight of the difference, Incognito is the flipside.  The story of a bad guy forced to be good, and what happens when he starts to go stir-crazy from the monotony of normal life.  It’s a dark look at good and evil and pulp and noir all in one hard-hitting package.”

Marvel  has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the issue that arrives December 10, 2008.

What if you were an ex-super-villain hiding out in Witness Protection… but all you could think about were the days when the rules didn’t apply to you?  Could you stand the toil of an average life after years of leaving destruction in your wake? And what if you couldn’t stand it?  What would you do then?


Make note of the price – $3.50 (no ads) for the first issue.

    Seriously, this completes comics, everything else should just either shut up shop or desperately try and emulate how good this will be.

    *these opinions are vastly over exaggerated, please don’t shut up shop…I need comics. All sorts of comics.*
